The University of Utah will host its eighth annual Veterans’ Day Commemoration Program on Friday, Nov. 11, to honor Utah veterans who have served our country in military service. Again this year, the U is inviting members of the Utah community to submit nominations for honorees.
The University has deep respect for all veterans, but because of the advancing age of some who served in World War II and Korea, and with this year marking the 30th anniversary of the fall of Saigon and the beginning of the end of the Vietnam War, we are focusing on veterans from those three conflicts for this year’s commemoration program. However, all nominees will be considered.
The nominee must be willing to talk about his/her wartime experience, have been in harm’s way (hazardous duty) or had combat experience, and currently reside in Utah. Eleven honorees will be selected to receive a commemorative medallion at a ceremony in their honor on Nov. 11 at the University of Utah. In addition, the 11 veterans will be presented on the field at half time during the football game against New Mexico on Saturday, Nov. 12, at Rice-Eccles Stadium.
Nominations and supporting materials are due by July 6. Nomination forms are available online at www.veteransday.utah.
edu or from the office of University Marketing & Communications at 201 Presidents Circle, Room 308, Salt Lake City, Utah 84112, or by calling 801-581-6773, or by sending an e-mail request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
